so stay frosty

Welcome Arkos Shippers

I’m going to keep this short and sweet as a first post (mostly b/c I need to get to bed)

This blog is hopefully to be the home of the future Arkos Week where we spend seven whole days celebrating the love that is Arkos!

For a time slot, I am thinking sometime in February, the 17th-23 to be exact. Just a couple days after the anniversary of the day we got the biggest case of whiplash. (and I will be off school that week and able to devote my time to you guys)

That also gives me quite a bit of time to come up with regulations/rules, prompts, and take feedback. 

That being said, I am taking prompt ideas (whether be through tags, reblogs and/or asks) so if you have a great idea, send them in!!

Also spread the word (likes are good, reblogs are great) cause the more participants we have, the more fun this will be!!!

I’ll post more when I have more information to give so until then, stay frosty!!

HEY KIDS, UPDATE:

My lack of presence as of late is not due to anything bad, nor due to the teeth I got pulled (that’s been super well, actually), it’s just, I have this whole week off (due to Chile’s Independence holiday, known as Fiestas Patrias), so I am maximally using this time to Play Games because I have a turbo harsh semester for what remains of it after this week is over, so I am getting that out of my system now so I have No Regrets later.

THAT’S THAT, SWEETIES, STAY FROSTY.

So, today, F’s coming over to hang out (for the uninitiated, F’s my best friend), and we’ve been playing a lot of DS3 as of late, but he’s missing on a lot of lore, so he asked me if I could longplay DS1 for him, so that’s what I’ll be marathoning today: Dark Souls 1 in one sitting (I can do it, no sweat) while also explaining the whole lore. I am actually pretty excited for it, since my dude is not too adept at video games, but he still loves them and wants to know The Cool Lore, and it’s been a while since I last had a tango with DS1 myself, so it’ll make good nostalgia.

I also let Nerofes pass without playing it at all, lmao, damn, I just really needed a break after Summer 2017 (it was EXCELLENT but I played so much), and I didn’t really wanna have to deal with Nero’s voice on top of Da Vinci’s voice. DW is some auditory terrorist at times.

I’ve been playing World of Warcraft! I’ve been enjoying it quite a bit. I actually sat down the other day and thought “hey… so why did I not like WoW all those years ago?”. As much as I am not the type to want to be all chummy chummy with groups and all, I did use to enjoy MMOs and derive enjoyment from making ramshackle mercenary alliances with internet strangers (kind of like how I enjoy my Mann vs Machine).Thinking back on it, it was actually something unrelated to WoW as a game per se: My brother was very into MMOs back then, so we shared accounts to just pay one subscription, but that meant I mostly had to hang out with his shitty MMO friends now and then, and he insisted on letting us be level boosted by partying up with higher level people, which more or less killed my interest because I like to achieve things on my own, and I dislike being carried. I also didn’t really know what I was doing back then. I sat down and played the Starter Edition and, hey, I’ve been having plenty fun (it helps Draenei and Blood Elves are playable now!), so :)))) I’ve been doing that.

I don’t know what el– Oh yeah, I was gonna write something I’ve had in mind for a long time now and post it, but games happened. However, I want to say that I have polished this something enough that I think it’s presentable to write it and post it as more than just a one-shot. Just something to look forward to, maybe, if you like the stuff I write. It involves urban fantasy, demons, tax evasion, and a whole lot of cyber-hounds.

YEAH, THAT’S ALL, STAY LOVELY, YOU DIAMONDS.

Random musing:

When I was in college I was really stressed out. I mean really stressed out. It still stresses me out like I haven’t even seen campus in two years and it stresses me out. On top of the whole OH GOD COLLEGE thing, I had some pretty heavy life events weighing on me, which I won’t go into because privacy.

Anyway, one day my friend showed me this video. And I was like “What what is this Twilight garbage? Who are you I don’t even know.”

Then I kept watching. And then I started laughing.

I watched a few Rifftrax videos, then I quickly got into MST3k. And they became a surprisingly awesome point of comfort in my life. It wasn’t like when I would get back from my morning class and turn on the TV and just zone everything out. I would play one of the MST3k episodes or Best Of Rifftrax videos while I did my homework, and they helped me de-stress and stay focused. And I still listen to them when I need to get all zen-mode and write.

Long story short: take a little weight off your shoulders, make your life a little brighter. Check out Rifftrax and MSt3k and literally anything else anyone associated with either of those have done because it’s little nuggets of gold that have no monetary value but you will feel so much happier for having done so.

So stay frosty, keep circulating the tapes, and never lend Coronet Films money.

I’ve been wanting to post a summer outfit forever. And this is probably one of my favorites. A nice flowy blouse with a comfy pair of capris and a nice cover too. Lots of great color combinations you can go with to match the warm weather. Don’t forget the shades to protect yous pretty peeps. Any boy who hasn’t worn capris is definitely missing out. The manage to be cute and warm weather appropriate while not seeming too exposing. Very comfortable, physically and confidence wise. Sorry for modeling so much in these. I was feeling especially pretty and i was having a very nice day. ^_^ Also, anklets are always a very nice touch if you’re showing off a little scandalous 1800’s ankle. ;) My hair is getting so fluffy. XP Stay frosty cutie patooties. It’s good to be back.
